Eww baby, it was almost 50 degrees today! That opened a lot of doors for me--well, as far as clothes go. I thought of bright colors (when don't I?) and this chartreuse wool boucle jacket just jumped out at me. Oh, and how many thing do I have in my wardrobe that are this color???? Too many to mention, me-thinks!
This jacket, as much as I LOVE it, it can be tough to wear though for several reasons; three quarter length sleeves, the "A" shape, and should I say the color? I was lucky it was warm so I didn't freeze all day. In order NOT to have it look like a tent on top, I needed to go slim on the bottom. Love the covered buttons and the collarless neckline. The boucle is scrumptious!
This skirt is that longer length I am not crazy about--but its okay. It is a great fabric, wool and lycra, but it tends to be very body revealing--as in VPL's, hidden by a well placed hand. (I know, I know, I date myself with that phrase) It was such a pleasure to be able to wear thin stockings today! Boots added a bit of balance to the bottom--but my feet were killing me by the end of the day~
How much chartreuse or lime green do you have in your closet?
